New Delhi: Delhi government Thursday said
it has received no objection certificate (NoC) from all
departments concerned for regularisation of over 690
unauthorised colonies in the national capital.
Finance Minister A K Walia said the government was
expediting the process of regularising the unauthorised
colonies as soon as possible.
"So far, NoC has been given to 692 colonies out of
1639 colonies," he told reporters.
Walia said DDA has objected to regularisation of 136
colonies while the Forest department has reservation in
regularising 238 colonies.
He also said the Archaeological Survey of India has
raised objection to regularise 121 colonies across the city.
In 121 colonies, government agencies have found that
the built-up areas are less than fifty per cent while in 10
others it was found that there is no such area.
Asked about the delay in regularisation of the
unauthorised colonies, he said the government has already
spent Rs 2,700 crore to provide all basic amenities in them.
The Delhi Government had issued provisional
regularisation certificates to 1,218 unauthorised colonies
ahead of the Assembly election last year. The government has
plans to authorise 1,639 colonies.
